It contains 21 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Suncured Alfalfa and Green Beans (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Flavor.

Warning Due to this being a grain-free food that contains legumes or potatoes this Under the Sun recipe may be implicated in the FDA's ongoing investigation into diet-related Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
